“In last month’s bipartisan budget agreement, we secured additional funding to help cities like yours build water infrastructure and we’re going to have that funding to you by the end of next week,” the president said. “Our children should not have to be worried about the water that they’re drinking in American cities. That’s not something that we should accept.”

Obama signed an emergency declaration for Flint on Saturday which ordered federal assistance to support state and local response efforts.
